Microsoft Access reports prints small on Windows 10 computer

After setting up a Windows 10 computer one of the reports in the database prints extremely small, basically unreadable.  

Is there a fix for this?

The usual diagnosis goes:
-try that report on a different machine with/without win10
-try with a different user account on the same machine
-update your application and printer drivers

Try all those, please and also add the application version and build of access.

Adjust the report to specifically write to the native Windows PDF printer.
That should work.
Then set the report back to use the standard printer of Windows.

If it still is too small, I would just recreate the report.

Also be sure the new Windows 10 machine has a valid default printer setup.

The report works fine on a Win 7 computer.

All printer drivers were updated

There is a default printer

I do not know how to make it print to a PDF

The pdf printer should be an option when you choose print.  It will be listed with any real printers you have.  This doesn't actually print the file.  It saves it as a pdf but you will be able to tell if the font issue still exists when you view the pdf.

Yes, sometimes faster than spending hours with no guaranty for success.

You had to recreate the report - ok. So was it a win10 exclusive problem, or not?
